From bottle, Deep gold with off white head. Malt aromas to begin followed by citrus hops and stone fruit. Citrus and pine flavours dominate, there is a strong bread malt and caramel note. Not too bad.

Real nice fluffy off white in color to tan head, three fingers tall nicely with a good thick fingered cap. Nice opaque amber orange to copper red body color. Very clear, with minimal carbonation. Good solid looking brew.

Great nose. Slight toasty aromas, minor cookie biscuit and caramel sweetness with a nice fruity hop sense. Gingerbread like sweetness too, real nice aroma here, very impressed.

Palate sings nicely and simply. Biscuit and brown cookie dough, with real nice touches of tangerine and herbal hop. Finishes clean with much of the bitterness in the mid palate and minimal aftertaste. Good malt depth and backbone, which coats the palate in every crevice.

Overall a real nice pale ale, with a good biscuity malt angle.

A: A light copper colored beer with good clarity and little head.

S: Lots and f English malt with caramel dominating backed by biscuit and toast. The is a moderate earthy hops aroma with a light orange aroma from the yeast.

T: The taste matches the noise with a decent hops balance and a fairly strong malt character. The balance is slightly towards the bitter. The hops are earthy with a. Slight floral hint. The fermentation adds some orange and slight citrus. The finish is off dry and the aftertaste is a moderately lingering bitterness.

M: medium full bodied with moderate carbonation.

O: a pretty good English IPA with a good malt hops balance. I wouldn't hunt this one down but if you can't find a big bitter American IPA this will do well.

Shared with two friends on a picnic rug, New Year's Eve 2011/12.

Pours a burnished amber colour with steady bead feeding off-white fluffy head, with nice sticky lace and good retention. Looks nice.

Smells a bit fruity and sweet. Brown sugar is noticeable, with pineapple, touch of banana and pear. Hint of clove at the back; all smells a bit sweet, maybe aged badly? Needs more tang to cut through.

Taste is similar with lots of fruit upfront: caramelised pineapple, pear and rockmelon that gets some tang and spice midway, resiny and woody bitterness that lasts to the finish. A bit sharp late, with a bit of acid pull and earthy, aniseedy spice late. OK but a bit off-kilter.

Frothy and mildly sticky feel. Not bad.

A bit off-balance in key parts, but pleasant enough drinking.

Pours dark amber with a small fading head.
Nose shows caramel, toffee and butterscotch with soft spicy and floral hops underneath. Very malty. Old bottle perhaps? Still well within BB....
Similar flavours, very malty, lots of toffee and honey. Once again, only a hint of spicy hops. Too sweet, practically no bitterness.
Could use more carbonation.
Not a bad beer, but nothing like an IPA.... No hops, no bitterness.

Beautiful copper coloured amber with limited head and carbonation. Minimal aroma, but a hint of caramelized malts. The flavour is more pronounced, with rich caramel, grains and a pleasantly dry finish.

I would call this a decent session beer if it weren't for the APA level 6.5%. As it is, it will remain an occasional malty treat.

I tried this beer on May 13, 2011 at "Smokeless Joe" in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The beer poured a trancluscent gold colour with orange hues. and a thin off-white head. The aroma was pine, weak citrus, and grainy malts. The mouthfeel was medium bodied with medium carbonation. The flavour is slighty sweet, malty, with citrus and toffee. The finish is bitter.

Brilliant orange colour capped by off-white foam that doesn't stick around, or stick to the walls of my glass. Delicate wildflower hop aroma with a hint of honey. Perhaps too delicate though - you really have to work to pick it up. Lovely malt flavour shows toast and honey, there's a nice orange flavour that I'm not sure is ester or hop in nature, but leafy bitterness is definately of the humulus variety. There's a light butteriness to it that enhances the flavour rather than detracting from it. Medium bodied with very low carbonation. Feels soft, creamy, and smooth in the mouth. This is a decent and tasty beer that could be very good if the aroma were a little more forward.

Bottle courtesy of northyorksammy. Thanks!
Nice clarity, medium amber/orange colour with a short, off-white cap that showed great head retention. A fair amount of lacing clung to the glass too, at least for the first half glass. Light aroma, notes of grassy and herbal hops, a bit of citrus, caramel and toasted malts, very English in character and nicely balanced. The flavour was a little lackluster and muted in character, nothing really wrong with it though. A bit of malt sweetness, mild bitterness and hops, light citrus and grass with a hint of spice and alcohol in the finish. The texture was alright, a bit heavier than expected, but the low carbonation made for an easy drinking beer.
